OCOEE It wasn’t uncommon to see a group of students decked out in lab coats hurry toward their next event, science equipment in hand, during the Central Florida Regional Science Olympiad competition on Saturday, Jan. 19. Held this year at Ocoee High, the competition is for middle- and high-school students. The student teams compete in 23 different events, and top teams at the regional event advanced to the state level to join winners from six other regions. Events included identifying fossils, completing a crime-scene investigation, testing water quality, building the perfect glider and even engineering roller coasters.
